IAM Cloud Authentication Service 17

New Features & Improvements

  1. Login Control now has per application control
    Login Control, which enables granular access control by O/S, IP & Browser can now be applied on a per-application basis. This allows Admins to apply different access controls and set different SSO settings for different applications.
  2. Application & Tenancy detection
    Ability to detect the Tenancy and Application ID from the query string: IACTenancyID and IACApplicationID parameters, and use them for customer detection and retrieving per-application Login Control data.
  3. Minimum Self-Service Password Reset methods
    Users can now be forced to setup a specifed number of password retrieval methods at the point of login. Admins can set the minimum number of password retrieval mechanisms a user must complete. e.g. An admin could decide they want users to have 2 password retrieval mechanisms enabled – email & security questions. Once enabled, IAM Cloud would collect the requisite information (e.g. their preferred backup email address) from users as they next login. This data can then be used in case of future forgotten passwords.
